Posted on 01/05/2019 7:02:22 AM PST by SeekAndFind
A record number of Americans say they would want to move out of the U.S., according to a new Gallup poll.
In 2017 and 2018, 16 percent of Americans said they would want to leave America permanently for another country. The rise corresponds with the beginning of the Trump presidency in January, 2017.
The percentage of those who say they want to leave the country is higher than both the 11 percent who said they wanted to leave while President George W. Bush was in office and the 10 percent who said so under President Obama.
Those who said they wanted to leave the U.S. tended to be members of groups that lean Democratic, such as women, youth, and low-income people.
One fifth of women said they would want to live in another country, compared to only 13 percent of men. Three in ten of the poorest 20 percent of Americans said they also would like to leave.
All age groups saw a rise in desire to leave the country, but the highest percentage was 30 percent of Americans ages 15 to 29 who said they would prefer to move.
Many high-profile Democrats threatened to leave the country for Canada or Europe if Trump became president, although few did so.
The dEMOCRATS are so mean and nasty I would consider moving.
Mexico and Venezuela didn't make the list? I'm shocked!
I hope all the right people will give legs to their wishes. But: will they ever let their walkin’ do their talkin’?
Apparently there’s a large opening to the South hey can pass through.
Gasp panic what will become of the poor illegals that can’t find a job mowing lawns and house keeping.......................
They are free to leave. Don’t let the gate hit you in the backside as you go.
I have lived in other countries besides America and always am so glad to come home..What we really need is to get rid of the demons who have taken over and then bring our home back to where we were before they came in with the Soros groups..Get all the liberals out and things will look up..I Love AMERICA and will never want to move..
I get the sense that the ones who want to move are the ones that NEED to move. So move already.
This ‘poll’ was apparently a sampling of weak and duplicitous people who either don’t tell the truth or have no courage in chasing their own dreams.
All this talk about people fleeing the country is as you suggest just talk. The never seem to actually leave.
And, why are we stopping them?
Do they need help packing?
Well miss you terribly and think of you often. NOT!!
Saying they want to, or will move from the USA is one thing. Doing it is a different matter.
